Hatched out of a dedication to all things steep, The Dirty Dozen is a ride that celebrates exactly that, steep short roads.

Compact chainrings, 28C tyres and 32T cassettes are all justified as you try to battle your way up the 25% gradients. 

Our challenge is this:
Ride all the climbs, all 12(?) of them with a total of 2800 vertical gain. They are not long climbs, but the sure do hurt as the 110km course takes you on some amazing backroads through the hills of Minakami.

We here at RideJapan think that while that is tough, it is not nearly enough, hence, we give you 6hours to complete it. Solo of Team of 3.

What to Expect

The Dirty Dozen is a completely unsupported ride. And while there will be 3 checkpoints where assistance can be accessed in the event of an emergency, you are responsible for keeping yourself and your team going. Minimum kit should include two tubes, multi-tool, pump, patch kit, and a masterlink. We highly recommend spare kit and nutrition. A paper cue sheet will be supplied as well as a .gpx file for your gps.

The Dirty Dozen is not a race; it’s an unsupported, unsanctioned, and un-marshalled ride across stunning terrain. The rules are simple. The course is tough. Team members must start, ride and finish together.
